Life of an ALS Advocate
10 Minutes a Week to Help with Early Diagnosis of ALS!
The Everything ALS speech study is a Voice Project that will help us discover digital biomarkers using Artificial Intelligence to collect voice and facial metrics/data.
Biomarkers are characteristics of the body that can be measured (blood pressure, imaging, x-ray etc) and used to identify the progress of a disease. There is a need for a biomarker that can help diagnose ALS early on and help with understanding the course of this disease.
Our study will help change the way clinical trials are conducted in ALS. By discovering biomarkers for early detection of ALS and to use them as endpoints in clinical trials we can better understand the course of ALS and get patients on proper treatments early on. This will shorten the clinical trial length and lead to quicker drug discovery and thus get drugs to market and in bodies sooner.
